LOOKING FOR TIRES

After ther big ride to Galveston a few of us went way past the sewall to some back road and hit up some twisties and my bike was not handling the way i felt it should, it felt like i was sliding a lil bit in the sharp turns no mater how much i leaned over so i think i need better tires, right now i got some shty shinoks in the front and diablo strata in there rear. i know the shinko is the part of the problem? what do you think

Ever consider sand on the roads there. I doubt the Shinko in the front was the problem. If you were "sliding" the front in turns your a bad .

Tru about the sand being on the roads, but i also noticed a lil bit of slide when exiting the second to last turn on the nasa bypass (going towards kemah) it this normal for the speeds i was traveling at or do i need to make some adjustments to the bike. 70+mph btw

shinko's = for the street. every bike i get that has shinkos has the tires changed first for some michelins or bridgestones. (depending on whether i keep or sell it). they are great for straight line/ drag racing. other than that, they are junk IMO.

If you getting to the edge of your tires you need to be on a track. If you just think you are you need to be on a track. Either way Sunny can fix your tire problems.

It could just be your suspension causing the problems.
